Therapeutic swim and massage therapy in a 90 degree saltwater pool for my loving
yellow Labrador Rosie. She's fourteen years old and has acute arthritis.

Therapeutic Swim
Swimming incorporated with massage in a warm salt water pool allows the warm water to benefit your dog by relaxing and loosening stiff muscles, as well as providing a non weight bearing exercise for your dog. A licensed massage therapist will assist your dog through the swimming session. This is great for dogs with physical limitations, including spinal cord, paralysis, chronic pain, after surgery, arthritis and hip or elbow dysplasia.
